The two little girls had separate internal organs but were joined at the pelvis. Nearly 100 doctors and nurses from leading hospitals nationwide joined in the nine-hour operation on July 15.

After the treatment of more than two months, their injuries after the separation have recovered. The babies have proved great improvement during their physiotherapy. They can touch on the frame to stand and their other movement skills are basically close to normal children. They are given lessons for language development.

The children can enjoy the coming Mid-Autumn Festival at their home. One month later, they will return to hospital for another operation which is aimed to help deal with their digestive, urinary and pelvis problems.
